I fear that the new voters who see Bernie Sanders as their savior are coming to view the rest of the Democratic party and those of us who have long worked to achieve it's goals as the enemy.
There hasn't ever been a presidential candidate who has leveraged the Internet better than Bernie Sanders. It was just a matter of time before a candidate jumped into the interwebs with both feet, but the odd part was it was a 74-year-old grandpa.
2016 is seeing the complete breakdown of the political party system in the United States; mainly the two-party system. And as the parties implode, we are the ones left in the debris and rubble the politicians are leaving in their wake.
I truly believe that we are going to see a true melting pot that is the Sanders campaign. This is not the campaign of the establishment. This is not the campaign for the advantaged. This is the campaign for those who have had enough.
This is my message and prayer for Hillary Clinton tonight at the Democratic Debate: Hillary, please talk tonight about your record on women's rights and tell us more about how, when you are president, you will stand for women.
Let's clear something up: Hillary Clinton is no progressive; she and the New Democrats were barely even Democrats to begin with. Their rise to power in the 90s came at the price of embracing the laissez-faire economics and racial politics of the Reagan Revolution.
Trump's New Hampshire primary triumph vindicates his media-centric campaign and again emphasize the dominance of Trumpism -- his effective hijacking of the aggregated bloc of angry reactionaries largely assembled by Fox News, which ironically now cannot take him down -- in the Republican Party as a whole.
For those "feeling the Bern," this is not the moment to throw another log on the fire, curl up on your couch, and immerse yourself in books about the most popular brand to emerge from Vermont since Ben & Jerry's.
New Hampshire Democrats have shown the way. It remains to be seen if the rest of the Union will cease to listen to the rusted rails of mainstream media and usher in the revolution that Bernie Sanders has promised to lead.
The Hillary Clinton campaign is in panic mode; no more are they looking ahead to the general election, the focus is on Sanders approaching in the rear-view mirror. Clinton's policy positions and speech become more calibrated for the progressive primary voter.
By the time we get to the next Democratic presidential debate in Flint, Michigan, on March 6, we'll have a lot better feel as to who will go forward as the party's nominee. But now, there are only two Democratic candidates, because Martin O'Malley has ended his campaign.
It seems that the Nevada State Democrat Party did not get the memo that Democrats are the inclusive, big tent party. The Nevada Democrat caucuses will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11:00 am PST.
Although my work for the last 20 years has been bridging the gap between Left and Right, I recognize the incredible power of this quick turn-on. Whether I am attending a political event in person or engaging via the media, I feel the high just like everyone else. But frankly, the buzz is wearing off.
So you ask us: "How dare Bernie run?" You imply: "How dare you, a Democrat, support his run?" My answer, aside from pointing out that this is a democratic election rather than a Democratic coronation, is simple: I support Bernie Sanders because he supports me.
Mr. Sanders' attacks on the Democratic establishment have been powerful both because Ms. Clinton is so deeply embedded in that establishment and because her response, essentially that she is not part of the establishment because she is a woman, is one that resonates with almost nobody.
Iranian President Hassan Rowhani has been on a shopping spree in Europe to reap benefits from business deals worth billions of dollars. The red carpet was rolled out for him, and he was invited to some of the most esteemed locations on the continent to meet with business and political leaders.
